Winter Storm in Wisconsin!

This weekend it snowed at least a foot or more, then the high winds kicked in!  I'm sorry for anyone who had to be on the roads, but for me, this means HiBERNaTe!!  My husband made Italian vegetable soup, and I made some jewelry :)  Wanna see?

                                      "I Wait and Watch"

"Listening", because owls hear their prey, rather than see it.  Especially when it's covered with snow!
These are jasper (Brecciated?) owls with beautiful autumn colors.  I thought it was quite a challenge to get them successfully wired onto their branches!  Thank you, 24 gauge brass wire from Vintaj.  The branches, leaves, and chain are also from Vintaj.

                      No name yet, but I enjoyed knotting with the brown/black waxed linen.  I would love some name ideas, just a little comment will do!

            Faceted gold and black glass beads with 14 kt. goldfilled findings.
         It would dazzle with one of those "little black dresses", but I hesitate to use that for the name.


  1. Great pieces, love the owl necklace and the 'little black dress'. Stay warm and safe.

  2. I'm totally in love with the owl!

  3. I am all ahoot for that owl! So pretty! So glad you are putting this weather to good use. Enjoy the day, beading buddy!
